Protozoa

What are the protozoa? Where do they live? What do they eat? Do they taste like chicken? Three out of four of these questions will be answered as Tim and Moby check out these small creatures in this BrainPop movie. You’ll discover protozoa’s place in the tree of life and learn why they’re considered “animal-like.” You’ll also find out how protozoa can live inside other organisms as parasites or in a state of symbiosis! And, Tim will introduce you to the four major categories of protozoa, as well as how different protozoan critters use their special parts to move around and eat!
